8 years ago I was diagnosed with an Arnold chiari malformation and syringmylia . I had cervical decompression surgery this did restore my spinal cord to near enough normal but my pain has got progressively worse ever since, ear pain, neuropathic shoulder, arm and wrist pain, loss of temperature sensation, and numb hands. Has anyone else had this surgery? What was the outcome? All doctors do is patch me up with pain relief and for 8 years now i have been on so much pain relief I rattle when I walk, it's becoming more and more difficult to maintain some sort or normal life, and I dread to think the detremental effect it's further adding to my health.
